    Hi from Arizona

    Hi everyone, I've been around firearms for most of my life, but I'm New to handguns and cc.

    I bought a Beretta Nano last month, and I've shot 300 rounds through it. I like it and it's comfortable to shoot, but it had failure to extract issues, so I sent it to Beretta for repair; they replaced the extractor, and the turnaround time was only 9 business days. I took it to the range yesterday and only had a couple of FTE errors out of 100 rounds, and I think the malfunctions were due to the ammo I was using (Winchester 115 gr. FMJ).

    I plan on taking some shooting classes soon, and I read a lot about cc and watch a lot of you tube videos. Arizona is a constitutional carry state, but there are advantages to having a ccw permit, so I am taking a ccw class next month.

    This forum is a great resource, and I am glad to be a member.

    Bye for now,
    Missy
